During a database connection, the client accesses the LDAP directory to retrieve the required database and protocol information. The client uses this information to connect to the database.
In an LDAP-enabled environment, the directory information about Db2® servers and databases is stored in the LDAP directory. When a new database is created, the database is automatically registered in the LDAP directory.
Use the Db2 CLP commands in the LDAP environment to:
- Manually catalog a database in the LDAP directory.
- Register a database cataloged in LDAP as an ODBC data source.
- Configure CLI/ODBC information about the LDAP server.
- Remove a database cataloged in the LDAP directory.
